Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans 12: 9-16, 21
Sundays at 8:30am, 10am and 11:30am in the Worship Center.
The front doors to the Worship Center will open 10 minutes before each service.
Online services for Adult, 4FIVE6 and Kids, will be available Sundays at 8:30, 10 and 11:30am.
Reservations are not required, however due to CDC recommendations, a member of our team will electronically check you/your family in at the door.
For touchless check in, we will be using a smartphone app called Church Center. Prior to arriving on campus, simply download the app (Keyword search Church Center) and select Union Chapel as your home church. If you are not tech savvy, we have prepared both an instructional video and written instructions.
If you do not have a smartphone or cannot download the app, we can use the last 4 digits of your phone number, the app simply expedites the check in process.
Seating will be managed in accordance with CDC recommendations.
The CDC recommends wearing face masks in public settings when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Wearing a face mask may limit exposure to respiratory droplets and may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus.
Yes, we will sing in our services.
Overflow seating is available on campus with the live streamed service on screen.
At our 8:30 service, kids are encouraged to sit with their families in the Worship Center, or in the Oneighty Auditorium during our service. For our 10am and 11:30am services, Kids and Preteen ministries (Infant - 6th grade) are open. Our secure check-in system is now touchless. To check in your child, download the Church Center app on your smart phone prior to arrival.
We encourage those in "at-risk" categories to use their best judgement in deciding whether or not to engage online or in person.
Everyone will exit using the doors directly behind the stage. Dismissal will be staggered in order to allow for social distancing. While not in a formal manner, we do ask that you exit your row after those seated immediately in front of you leave their row.

The coffee shop will be open with seating available in the Courtyard area. Note: All water fountains are turned off in accordance with CDC recommendations. Bottled water is available at the Welcome Center.
Staff and volunteers will be cleaning and disinfecting all surfaces before and after each service. All high-volume areas and hard surfaces will be thoroughly sanitized, as well as, the restrooms. We use hospital-grade sanitizing solutions and an electrostatic sprayer that allows us to thoroughly and safely disinfect seating and surfaces in minutes. For personal use, additional hand-sanitizer stations are available throughout campus.
Anyone who is sick or displays COVID-19 symptoms as defined by the CDC, should stay home and participate in one of our online gatherings. If you are notified by a medical professional that you have tested positive and were on Union Chapel campus starting 2 days before illness onset, please notify Candace Ford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are not ready to come back, we understand. We are in a time of great change and life is far from normal for most people. If you and/or your family are uncomfortable attending an in-person gathering at this time, we encourage you to continue to connect with us online and even consider hosting a Watch Party.
In our services we are encouraging verbal greetings and friendly waves.
